Gypsy Day on the Farm PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Gypsy Day on the Farm free pdf Moving house can be chaotic at the best of times but during Gypsy Week many farming families in New Zealand transport a herd of cows as well. For scores of farmers and sharemilkers around the country, June 1st has become known as Gypsy Day - when farms change ownership and families move entire households, farm equipment and cattle to a new property on busy Queen's Birthday weekend. This evocative story celebrates an important day on the New Zealand farming calendar through the eyes of a young boy and his sister. Light, humorous illustrations by Lisa Allen capture life on the farm, with the fun of calf day, trapping eels in the creek, building tree huts and keeping rabbits. And there's a surprise ending that all children can relate to. The last two pages of the book provide further information about Gypsy Day in New Zealand.
